Doireann Garrihy gets emotional as she shares ‘gut feeling’ that lead to her quitting RTÉ 2FM

Doireann Garrihy got emotional as she shared the “gut feeling” that lead to her quitting RTÉ 2FM.

The 32-year-old opened up about her decision to leave the station after five years on the latest episode of her podcast, Doireann and Friends.

The presenter will host her final 2FM Breakfast show with Donnacha O’Callaghan and Carl Mullan this Friday, May 31st.

Speaking at the start of the episode, Doireann said: “I haven’t thought about what it’s going to be like not working with Donncha and Carl every day anymore.

“I don’t want to go there because there’s nothing worse than a blubbering radio presenter so I’m going to try my best to hold it together on Friday.

“Thank you to anyone who’s listening who’s been on the radio journey with me. I’m going to miss you so much. The listeners are what makes it.”

Struggling to hold back tears, she continued: “Ah… I’m getting emotional. The listeners are what makes it and… I’m such a loser half crying on my own here.”


“It’s been, through thick and thin, just the best experience.”

“But it is time for me to move on and I really feel that in my gut. You know when you have a gut feeling – you simply can’t ignore it.

“And my gut has never sent me wrong before, be it career stuff, personal life stuff, whatever… it’s never set me wrong and I’ve always used it as my guide.

“This decision has been no different. So here we go – new chapter, new venture,” she added.

Alongside Doireann, The 2 Johnnies have also announced their exit from the station, as well as Jennifer Zamparelli.

Laura Fox has been confirmed as Jennifer’s replacement in the 9-12pm slot, but replacements are yet to be announced for Doireann and The 2 Johnnies.

It’s understood Doireann is considering a move to London with her comedian beau Mark Mehigan after they tie the knot in October.

The couple are set to wed at The K Club in Co. Kildare, which is bound to be a star-studded occasion.
